The Abiola family gave the warning to Al-Mustapha via a letter signed by Mrs. Hafsat Abiola-Costello.
The Abiola family gave the warning via a letter signed by Mrs. Hafsat Abiola-Costello.
The letter reads:
“The family of Alhaja Kudirat Abiola read the statements you made in Ondo State in the past week, proclaiming your innocence in the assassination of Kudirat Abiola.”
“It is worth recalling that you were convicted by the High Court in Lagos State. And although you were acquitted by the Appeal Court on technicalities, the case is before the Supreme Court. Your current rantings are designed to divert the course of justice.
“It should be noted in the context of your recent declaration of innocence that Sergeant Rogers confessed before the Oputa panel that you gave him the gun to carry out the murder of our mother. You never challenged the evidence of Rogers at the panel. The video of his confession is available on YouTube, if you need to refresh your memory.
“Justice is the only way to ensure peace, especially in plural societies like ours.”
Al-Mustapha was the former Chief Security Officer to late military Head of State, General Sani Abacha.
He recently claimed that he had nothing to do with Kudirat Abiola's assassination.
